The Siouxland Institute of film

 

Bringing the World's Movies to Sioux City

The Siouxland Institute of Film, Inc. and its creators have been working for 13 years to promote independent film in Siouxland, a tri-state area including parts of Iowa, South Dakota, and Nebraska. The area has over 130,000 people, and thousands more living nearby -- a large audience in dire need of a good film. That's why we created this Film Festival. For the 13th year in a row, we will be bringing the Siouxland community together for five evenings of entertainment, supplied by “local” independent movie-makers and those from around the world. The festival includes only short movies, with a 30 minute length limit so that we may show more films. As in previous years, the final day will be held at the historic Orpheum Theater, a 2,400 seat renovated performance hall, with screenings earlier in the week at our host hotel, the Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center.

Our goal is to promote the art of film, encourage and support young filmmakers, bring interesting films to the Orpheum, and have fun!
